'Time to Attack': Chris Matthews Calls Upon Dems to 'Scare' and 'Anger' Liberal Base

'You can give the angry voter out there something really scary to vote against, a direction to really direct his or her anger'

A Furious Chris Matthews Calls on Dems to 'Scare,' 'Anger' Liberal Base: 'Time to Attack' (NewsBusters)

A clearly worried Chris Matthews attempted to rally the Democratic Party to avoid a midterm massacre, openly suggesting that the party's goals should be "angering" voters with "scary" Republicans. On Thursday morning, the MSNBC anchor conceded that the U.S. Senate will go Republican in November. By Thursday night, he pivoted, lecturing Democrats: "...You can give the angry voter out there something really scary to vote against, a direction to really direct his or her anger." "Time to attack," roared Matthews. 

Jumping from issue to terrifying issue, the Hardball host hyperventilated, "Want something else to fear? If the Republicans get the upper hand this fall, women's health care, Roe v. Wade, which that Florida Republican who just won plans to repeal." Matthews suggested, "You can warn people what the Republicans will do if they really clench power, how they're hell bent on cutting entitlements."
